Nairobi: Incoming Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja popularly known as SUPER SENATOR has said he respects Raila Odinga and can never insult him because he considers him his senior elder/politician.
Hon Sakaja who was earlier Yesterday declared fit to vie for Nairobi Senatorial seat was answering a question from senior Journalist Mr Job O. Ongera after IEBC cleared him to contest for Nairobi senatorial position on a Jubilee ticket.
“Mheshimiwa Sakaja, why do you always plays cool on NASA flag bearer Raila Odinga because you never insult him. In all your television and radio interviews, you have never criticized or insulted him like your fellow comrades in Jubilee do?”
“I have a feeling you want to fix me but undoubtedly, Raila is a senior politician and a political cognoscente. My respect for him is immense and can never be outfoxed by anyone. He is my senior elder both politically and communally. When he speaks, I listen because that is what integrity demands of me. When he verbalizes, I can only learn and speak when necessary. Where I come from, we are advised to respect our elders. Raila Odinga plays in the same league as my President Uhuru Kenyatta and he is the one obligated to answer him”
